Six really good reasons to hang out in the Northern Suburbs this weekend

Six really good reasons to hang out in the Northern Suburbs this weekend


Home to Australia’s first indoor wave pool and first gluten free restaurant, the Northern suburbs are shaping up to be a health hub that’s worth making a special trip for. Here’s six good reasons to pay a visit:


Yoga Tree Perth


With two studios in Vic Park and Joondalup already under their belt, Yoga Tree Perth have recently opened doors to their new location in Butler. Expect the same warm welcome and inclusivity, along with their signature family vibe and large community that have made their other studios so well-loved. The Butler studio will also offer the same diversity in their timetable of classes; from Hot Yoga, Hot and Reformer Pilates, to slowing it right down with Yin Yoga.


Aloha Surfhouse


Australia’s first indoor wave-pool facility is in Joondalup and it goes by the name; Aloha Surfhouse. If sharks, or the thought of getting swept into the big blue has stopped you before, then this might be the perfect introduction to the world of surfing. For weekends when there’s no swell or time to travel down south — Aloha Surfhouse provides a forever breaking wave that works 365 days of the year. For those wondering what to get their Gromit or grown surf bum for Christmas, here’s your answer.


Salts of the Earth


For cold sufferers with congestion, a salt therapy session at Salts of the Earth might be the best cure. It was invented by a Polish physician who observed fewer respiratory problems in salt mine workers when compared to the general population back in 1983. Cleansing the airways of dust, pollution, pollens and other allergens, salt therapy works by grinding and releasing pharmaceutical grade salt particles into the air, so they can be inhaled deep into the lungs and to help loosen congestion and relieve symptoms of certain skin conditions.


Ladle + Press


As the name suggests Ladle + Press mainly offer soups and cold press juices, but owner Ian McTavish saw a problem with the amount of fiber and nutrients being lost with the juice pulp. After looking for ways to reduce wastage, he invented the Ladle + Press loaf; a bread recipe with vegetable pulp as the key ingredient. Making for a nutrient dense loaf with a similar texture to banana bread, it has more flavour than your average white loaf of bread and is delicious as is, or toasted with butter. What might be even better though, is their chocolate mud cake slice — all 70 per cent of it is made with beetroot, orange and ginger pulp.


Kapitol Kitchen


The doors of Western Australia’s first refined sugar and gluten free restaurant have just swung open in Wanneroo, and it’s been dubbed Kapitol Kitchen. Serving dairy free and vegan options for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert — there’s an equally mindful cocktail and drinks list too. Expect high ceilings, balcony dining and comfortable Chestermen booths below, as well as a colourful health-conscious menu featuring falafel Buddha bowls for lunch or vegan fish and sweet potato chips for dinner.


Beyond Rest


For those counting down the days until their next holiday, a float in one of the pods at Beyond Rest should tide you over. With the temperature set the same as your body, a session in a deprivation pod feels a little like you’re floating in space. For the first ten minutes, there’s soft music set at a meditative frequency and chakra light therapy to ease you into a deep meditation. After that, the light turns off for an hour to give your mind a mini vacation… all without leaving Joondalup.
